Falling Leaves

The leaves have begun to fall. Relaxing in our outdoor swing, I observed the ground is covered with brown, brittle brush. Actually, I’ve seen only a few drifting down; but the covered ground tells me the air is raining leaves. The first falling leaves are sneaky. They don’t let you see them. Soon, however, they will fall in large quantities, a deluge of tree dandruff.

Letter to the Editor: Pastor Russ of Gallatin

Dear Editor:

Three years ago on Aug. 22, 2012, it was the worst day of my life. My father, Lee Robertson, passed away. I was hurt beyond belief. I had lost the man I loved and admired. I had no idea what I was going to do without a dad. I lived out of state. When I finally got to my dad it was the day before the funeral at

Labor for the Master

A pastor invited me to fill a church pulpit. It was Father’s Day. I mentioned I might bring a Father’s Day message. “Oh, that’s a secular holiday. We don’t pay any attention to those,” my colleague replied.

There are several secular celebrations absent from our Christian calendar. A wise pastor/church will take note of them. For example, soon we will celebrate Labor Day. Few things touch us more than our

Two Kinds of People

by Pastor Steve Ellison

Someone has rightly said, “There are only two kinds of people in churches: those who talk about the lost and those who talk to the lost.”

In John 4 an uncommon man stopped at a well for a conversation with a common and less than respectable woman. As the rest of the busy world went about its business, Jesus spoke truth to this woman. When she

Small is Not a Four Letter Word

In today’s news there was an article about small colleges and their struggles. It is common to think bigger is better, and students often choose a college by its size assuming they will get a bigger/better education at the big school.

ShepherdCalls_WPThe article caught my attention because I am the product of a small school. In 1957 I graduated from Union University in Jackson, TN. At that time, the school
